I think an article that deals solely with the consolidation would be beneficial --JimWae (talk) 03:57, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Dead rabbits riot?[edit]

From the article:

"The police being busy with their feud, the Dead Rabbits Riot between two Irish gangs in Five Points occurred in July, lasting two days, killing about 100 people, and stopped only by intervention of the state militia. It was the worst riot up to that time."

Is this correct, the description of the parties ("two irish gangs") and the number of dead?

These two points were entirely erroneous, or at least they flatly contradicted the linked Dead Rabbits riot article, so I have deleted them. Thank you for your alertness. Jim.henderson (talk) 13:46, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
